we would be 3-1 only if................. 


FOR 2 WEEKS IN A ROW WE ARE PAYING A KICKER TO DO ONE THING KICK A BALL THROUGH 2 POLES, HE HAS FAILED AND LOST US 2 GAMES WHERE OUR RECIEVERS AND ROOKIE QB ARE BREAKING RECORDS. banghead THEY WERE SHOWING OUR KICKER ON NATIONAL TV IN OT  SITTING ON HIS ASS MAKING SURE HIS LONG ASS  HAIR WAS LOOKING GOOD IN HIS HAT  THEN THEY SHOWED ARIZONAS KICKER WARMING UP  OUR KICKERS WORRIED ABOUT HIS LONG HAIR SITTING ON HIS BUTT   WHILE IT IS HIS FAULT WE ARE NOW  1-3  INSTEAD OF 3-1    IF I WAS COACH HED BE WATCHING THE GAME NEXT WEEK AT HOME. PHILBIN ALL ALONG WE WERE WORRIED ABOUT A  QB, WELL DO US ALL A SIMPLE FAVOR  FIND A KICKER. WHEN YOU FIND A KICKER  MAKE SURE HES MORE WORRIED ABOUT KICKING A BALL  IN OVERTIME  INSTEAD  OF  KEEPING HIS LONG HAIR OUT OF  HIS FACE.  DOLPHINS DOING  GREAT  ITS SAD ONE MAN HAS MADE THE TEAMS RECORD LOOK WORSE THAN THE TEAM

Wow i have to admit i  don't like Dan Carpenters hair and i think he looks kind of like Joe Dirt but the dude is a good kicker.How can you pin this game soley on him? IT WAS A 51 yard Fieldgoal you expect that to be automatic????? That is insane bro
You want to release him and sign who Billy cundiff or some scrub who doesn't have a job for blowing alot more kicks then Carpenter?? How many of them have made a 60 yard field goal with an extra 10 yards to spare?

I am not trying to antagonize you but you are overreacting big time.. I know we could have been 3-1 if our kicker didn't have a bad game against New York and missed a tough 51 yard kick in arizona

Yeah, I wish he would have made them also. And yes, we could be 3-1 if he would have; BUT, I ask this of everyone that's been bashing the kicker.................When's the last time YOU tried to kick a FG?

I'll bet you that MOST people on this board can't make an extra point even WITHOUT a defense in front of them.

Yeah, I know he gets paid to kick, but lighten up for now.

What's REALLY killing this team right now is TURNOVERS. Without those, we could be 4-0.

I am thrilled with Thill's play, the run game and the D against the run and how our front 7 has performed.  Next year with the right additions, we are a playoff team and in 2 years a Superbowl contender.

I fully agree this team would be 3-1 if Carpenter did the job he was being paid. He missed 2 kicks (including what wouldve been the OT winner) in the Jets game. Then with the 51 yarder he missed yesterday wouldve put the team up 16-0. So instead of Arizona driving for a tying TD they wouldve been down by two scores. He's paid 2 million a year to perform when called on. A 61 yarder is pushing it but a 51 yarder is NOT far fetched if this team has playoff aspirations. Now if they're content with being competative (but still loose) then yeah lets make excuses for those misses. I dont say cut Carpenter but i think some kickers need to be brought in to light a lil fire under his butt. He doesnt deverve to be too comfortable. I know other factors contribute to the losses but just two made kicks would change this entre conversation.

I think I'm begining to understand why Sparano would get so jacked up when Dan would MAKE his field goal attempts...crazy

Maybe Philbin needs to start fist pumping the next time Dan hits one. Ya know, to get his confidence back and stuff. Obviously, the bad pron-stache isn't working.

He is the 6th highest paid kicker in the NFL and missed 3 potential game winning FG's the last 2 games.

Having said that, our defense giving up a TD with seconds left in the game or Tannehill throwing a pick giving the Cards field position are just as much to blame.

Overall, as a team, we just aren't making the plays you need to win football games right now.

well... we are paying the dude to make those kicks. What scares me is that even with the short ones he is barely getting them through the uprights. I just hope Dan hasnt lost it. It happens to kickers all the time. We are a young and upcoming team. Just being in games to the very end is a good thing right now. Eventually we will learn to win the close ones. I see us in the playoffs as early as next year.

Carpenter's leg strength has improved massively since he came into the league though, I remember he couldn't even kick it off to the endzone when he first came here. Now we have a shot if its within 60 yards.

He is going through a rough patch most kickers face them and you don't sign an inferior product to replace a guy midseason who has the ability like Carpenter when he is on.

I have to admit I have been calling for his head the last two weeks. I expect Tanny and others to make some mistakes but Carpenter has one job, one job only!!!!
